The Fotona laser used for vaginal tightening (also sometimes referred to as vaginal rejuvenation) stimulates the collagen-rich vaginal mucosa tissue with precisely controlled laser pulses. This process of collagen neogenesis and reconstruction works to tighten the vaginal walls and also improve lubrication during sex.
To date, there have been few studies on gynecological laser treatments. However, there have been many analogous studies in the field of dermatology. The results of the
